and welcome to the 1.Jagdmoroner Abteilung,
is a forum on which to discuss military history, military matters
in general and related political issues. And other stuff deemed
worthy of discussion. We are not dogmatic, and there is plenty of
leeway in here
is the background of this forum?
We are a collection of geeks, who found each others elsewhere, but
migrated to this safe haven August 29th 2002. This site was made
by Friis and Grosbøl, who maintains it and updates it occasionally
(we do! Honestly!). A few of the other members have helped morally
and financially and we are grateful to them for their help. We are
also delighted that some of our brethren have taken the time to
submit their own work to our articles
what´s with the Penguiners?
We´ll get to that later.
so where´s that, Djibouti?
.dk is the national domain of Denmark, and the place of residence
of both the hosting server and most of the Junta. It was chosen
because it was cheaper than a .com domain, and because we felt some
cybertourism wouldn´t hurt. You can live with it
I know that! It´s the capital of Sweden!
First of all, that isn´t really a question. Secondly Denmark
is a constitutional Monarchy that can trace its independence as
a unified nation back to ca. 900 a.d. It is currently ruled by Queen
Margrethe II. Its flag Dannebrog fell from the heavens at the battle
of Lyndanisse in Estonia June 15. 1219.
lies in Northern Europe, the Northern neighbour of Germany (who
should invade during the next decade if they are to be on scheduele
) and the Western neighbour of Sweden.
the girls are pretty cute; no, there aren´t any polar bears
in the streets in winter.
by the way: we´re Metric and we mean it!
are you telling me this?
Well, you asked, and some common knowledge has never hurt anyone.
if I want to sue you, I won´t get anything out of it?
Correct, since our legal home is in Denmark, you´d get diddley
squat out of it.
what, we have to speak Danish?
As one might have gathered by the FAQ so far, the official forum
language is English. Posts in other languages will not be tolerated
unless the forum administrators understand said language and is
sent a hefty bribe . Or if it is ontopic to speak swahili or whatever.
Or if it is funny. We are not a dictatorship, we are more like enlightened
All in good time.
what can I discuss at this forum?
Generally speaking, military history and politics. But since the
scope of these topics extend into quite many subjects, pretty many
diversions are allowed. The fine line between the topics are always
blurred anyway, and although we aim to keep things on topic, we
are not hysterical. Besides you couldn´t stay on topic even
if you tried!
there is the Shore Leave category, which is meant for lighthearted
fun. In there we are VERY tolerant!
Think again, dweep! Personal insults, unacceptable material and
general bad behavior will lead to deletions; first the offending
parts of the post, followed by a warning, then deletions of entire
posts (to save time) and finally to expulsion from the forum.
try to be fair and just, and certainly not to let our own views
colour things. This is off course difficult, so feel free to take
up discussion of the editing in the Officers Mess category of this
Well, this seems a godd a time as any.
some strange reason, an article was put up at another place (referred
to as TOBB) describing how penguins on the Falklands fell over backwards
when planes flew overhead. Within one page of discussion the Penguiner
had become a symbol of all that is True and Good in life , like
good posting supported by facts and being polite. Conversely the
Moroner became a symbol of the troll, the impolite and the factfree
the 1. Jagdmoroner Abteilung came into life. A unit of Penguiners
specialized to combat Moroners by infiltration tactics or main assault!
motto: "Who dares Penguins!"
the Cool smiley is approving that something is Penguinic, i.e. True,
Good or just plain Allright.
the means that something is Not Good, Stupid, Callous and all in
all Not Allright. Please note that a Moroner is NOT a moron, and
that the administrators will allow the use of the word in a non
Gallery contains a collection
of drawings that capture the Beauty of the Penguiners and the Evil
of the Moroners.
Where do I go from here?
Go register and join in the fray! Please note that we will only
allow registered users. This is from bad experience on TOBB, where
an influx of Moroners lead to a degeneration of the general level
this seems very good, is it this easy?
betcha this is just some scam to get peoples E-mail for spamming
No, they will NOT be divulged to a third party by the administration
of this board, but bear in mind that any information you put up
publicly is, er, public. Some prudence when dealing with strangers
on the internet is advisable.
right, but then you are going to make a bundle on adverts and popups
and what not!?
Do you see any? The Junta HATE popups and will NEVER have them on
this forum. Popups is contrary to everything Penguinic!
for advertising, this shouldn´t be nescesarry. As things are
now the board is paid right out of the Juntas own pocket. This is
no problem at the moment. How long this will stay so is unclear,
but we´ll take pains to avoid annoying advertising.
this moment in time, asking people to send in money probably wouldn´t
go down to well either
will progress as we go along, and rest assured we´ll keep
of which, will there be any improvements to this site?
Yes! Firstly we have to get things running, but in both the short
and long run we expect to provide added content.
to arrange for an Online wargaming/simulation page forum members
can use to team up on, and perphaps even use for PBEM and such.
We should have our own clan, btw, the *1.JmA*. Let´s get going
you, dear Penguiners, have any ideas for improvements then take
them to the Officers Mess and let us hear! Bear in mind though,
that none of the Junta is particularily wellversed in homepage design.
We are learning. Fast, as it is!
do I submit my articles, full of brillianty reaseached original
mail them to the mailingslist
administrator who will read them and post them to our article
section if the content is within the scope of this site. Any links
you want to share goes the same way. The mailinglist is sent out
occasionally with the latest updates from the links
think I´ve gotten answer to most of my questions now; what
if I come up with more later?
Just post them in the Officers Mess, it´s that simple.
note that there is a forum FAQ in the top right corner of the any
page (yes, move your eyes up and right! ), this will answer most
questions on the practical use of the forum.
be off to post profound, serious and factfilled post on this delightful
Of you go then!
